What do you think?
I thought of this yesterday as I was cleaning up after helping a friend do a bottom stripping job and while I was standing in the shower and trying to clean all the blue dust from my face.
As anybody who has sanded off any bottom paint knows, its a dirty job; one that requires a proper resperator and eye protection. But no matter how much protection you have for your lungs and your eyes, the blue dust gets everywhere. The clean up of your face can be a job in itself.
I was thinking as I showered yesterday, what if I had applied a thin layer of Vaseline to my face before I started working. I would think the film of gel would have aided a great deal in cleaning when the work was done.
Has anybody tried this? What do you think? Dumb idea, why bother, or hey that sounds like it might work?
Please, only those who have been there respond. If you have never been under a boat sanding off multiple layers of bottom paint, in my opinion, its something that every boat owner needs to experience. Than try and clean up.
